In the upcoming months, Capcom is going to be releasing

Street Fighter 2 Super Turbo HD (xbox 360 arcade)
Street Fighter 4 (PC, Arcade cab, Xbox 360)
and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (Not sure on consoles)

Edmonton has a very dedicated Street fighter player base, and are very competitive. Currently, aside from peoples homes, Circuit Circus in West Edmonton mall provides Capcom Vs SNK 2, Marvel Vs Capcom 2, and Street Fighter 3rd Strike on Arcade cabinets, and (when the machines aren't busted) they receive dedicated attention, even with the games going on 8 years old.

EDIT: I noticed there is a Street Fighter 2 Arcade there. can anyone confirm if it is super turbo, or not?

There's a lot of Buzz over these new games, and this may be a mutual opportunity. With 3 new Street fighter games being released, all older SF community players are going back to the arcade to enjoy a possible return. The Street fighter community needs a place where tourney's can be potentially held, and prices are reasonable, to maintain the social aspects of the game.

If prices were reasonable, I could immagine the relaxed environment AP-Gaming provides could be an ideal place for these people to meet at a central location and duke it out. The only thing I can immagine would be necessary are solid joystick setups if you chose to use console versions of the game. Understandably, cabinets can be expensive.

regardless, this may be a venture worth exploring.

as reference to the street fighter community, heres a small forum thread where Edmonton Street fighter players still chat.

rest assured. this is just a small fraction of the active community.

As awesome as it would be to increase our customer base through the use of Xbox Live Arcade, Apocolypse Gaming only has one Xbox 360, and only one Xbox controller (Rock Band controllers notwithstanding.)

For multiplayer play to occur on-site here, some one will need to bring an extra controller. It also needs to be understood that one Xbox means only one TV going at a time, unless some one brings their own Xbox as well, complete with the proper games, as well as extension cables and so on to route it into our second gaming TV.

Another problem posed in your suggestions is the acquiring of more game boxes. While I would leap at the chance to play ANY of the Capcom Vs. Whatever games here, those cabinets are a good deal larger than the retro cabinets we have right now. Space is definitely a road block for us in this field.

I'm not going to go any further, however, as company policy isn't my say. I just mop the floors and make sure the computer network doesn't crap out on us. I'm going to wait for raven to reply to this one before I make further comment.

Also, to confirm your question, yes, although our SF2 box is lovingly placed in a SFII championship edition case, the game itself is SFII Turbo Edition.
